Submitted by on May 10, 2011

Riders will be hoping for a sunny weekend for the annual Crawford River Classic Vintage Motocross race at Buladelah on May 21-22.

The famous VMX event run by the HEAVEN VMX club will see competitors travelling from as far as Queensland and Victoria for a spectacular weekend of racing.

A premier event on any VMX racers calendar, the grid is expected to surpass last years huge 120 entries. NSW based riders will be very keen to keep the trophies in NSW, no doubt the interstate  riders will be equally keen to get their hands onto the silverware.

Roy East Memorial Trophy (pre 65) Mark Austin #18

John Hine Memorial Trophy (pre 70) Ross Merrick #14

Geoff Eldridge Memorial Trophy (pre 75) Greg Bilton #32
